Dozens of children and their parents stood on a snow covered Watertown Square Delta Friday evening awaiting the delivery of a special package: Santa Claus.

Frosty the Snowman entertained the crowd as they awaited Santa’s arrival.

Saint Nick arrived in a Watertown Fire Department SUV for the ninth annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, which was hosted by the Rotary Club of Watertown and Watertown Savings Bank.
